Research is to see what everyone else has seen, and to think what nobody else has thought."

A superior active source of vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin)
The standard source of B12, Cyanocobalamin, is not a natural source. In fact, its not found anywhere in nature and must be converted by the liver into methylcobalamin in order be become utilized in humans (and all other animals). Cyanocobalamin is typically found in products such as Centrum and One-A-Day (see compare nutreince). Methylcobalamin is in a form that can be immediately utilized by the body. It is better absorbed and retained in higher amounts making it the best choice for nutreince!
6 milligrams of Lutein
Most multivitamins do not contain lutein at all, but we have added 6 milligrams of Lutein to nutreince because this is the amount that is recommended to prevent/reverse Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). Lutein is also a potent antioxidant!
Statin safe quantities of vitamins C and E
Science has shown us that more is not always better when it comes to the amount of vitamin C and E one should be taking if they are currently taking a statin drug. The anti-inflammatory effect of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs can be inhibited by taking mega doses of either vitamin C or E. Nutreince contains only the RDI of both of these vitamins, well within the safe rage for statin takers.
Both forms of vitamin B3 - Niacin and Niacinimide
Most multivitamins only contain niacinamide. However, the two forms of niacin perform completely different functions in your body. Niacinimide controls blood sugar but only niacin, a completely different form of vitamin B3 that is usually not found in multivitamins is the form that has been shown to lower LDL (bad cholesterol) and raise HDL (good cholesterol). nutreince contains both forms because when we say complete - we mean it!
A natural source of mixed tocopherols (vitamin E)
Nutreince supplies a natural source of mixed tocopherols (vitamin E) not a synthetic source of alpha-tocopherol (just one of four tocopherols). In some cases, synthetic forms of micronutrients can be absorbed and utilized in much the same way as the natural source. However, according to research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition this is not the case with vitamin E. Researchers found that levels of natural vitamin E in the blood and in the organs were double that of synthetic vitamin E when compared, showing natural vitamin E is better retained and more biologically active than synthetic. You can identify natural vitamin E by looking for a lower case "d" before the word tocopherol (d-tocopherol) the synthetic source will be identified with a lower case (dl) like this (dl-tocopherol). Additionally, new research is also showing that in order to get the full benefits of vitamin E you want a supplement with a full spectrum of vitamin E. Look on the label for "mixed tocopherols."
Chromium polynicotinate (not picolinate) and vanadium
Research has suggested that chromium picolinate may be linked to causing DNA damage. While the jury is still out on whether or not this is true, we decided to use the safest, most absorbable form of chromium in nutreince - chromium polynicotinate - a pure niacin-bound form of chromium, identified by U.S. government researchers as the active component of true GTF (Glucose Tolerance Factor) - which regulates the body's use of glucose and helps to balance blood sugar levels. vanadium, a mineral that studies suggest may improve glucose tolerance is also in nutreince.
Preformed vitamin A and beta-carotene, Astaxanthin, and Zeaxanthin
Some multivitamins only contain
beta-carotene - an inactive form of vitamin A (pro-vitamin A), which must be converted in the body to retinal (preformed) - an active form (conversion rate of 21:1) - nutreince gives you both forms of vitamin A and also contains supper antioxidants astaxanthin and zeaxanthin.
CoQ10 (aka Coenzyme Q10)
Here is a micronutrient you won't
find on the label of most multivitamins - it is just too expensive to
include! But we need CoQ10 to combat free radicals, maintain a healthy
blood pressure, support our nervous and immune systems and to energize
every cell in our body. And for those of you who are taking statins it
is essential for you to replenish your CoQ10 levels because statin drugs
directly deplete CoQ10.
Alpha Lipoic Acid, Quercetin and Grapeseed extract.
We hear a lot about the importance of
antioxidants, but do you know why alpha lipoic acid is often referred to
as the "King" of all antioxidants? It is because it is nature's only
known "universal" antioxidant. This means that it is both fat-soluble
and water-soluble and because of this is able to work throughout the
entire body. Additionally, while most antioxidants are "used up" after
they attack free radicals, scientific evidence suggests that alpha
lipoic acid has the unique ability to regenerate these other
antioxidants - making it so they can attack free radicals over and over
again. By combining alpha lipoic acid with quercetin and grapeseed
extract (two of the most powerful antioxidants on the planet) we
exponentially enhanced the ability of nutreince to fight free radicals
and enhance your health.
The dynamic duo of carnitine and choline.
Just when you thought nutreince can't get
any better - here is the icing on the cake. Did you know that the
combination of choline and carnitine has been called the "nutritional
equivalent to liposuction"? nutreince includes all three forms of carnitine
(L-Caranitine, N-Acetyl L-Carnitine & Propionyl L-Carnitine) because
like the micronutrients we discussed earlier (alpha and beta-carotene
and vitamins B3 and E), each form is thought to have unique benefits.
nutreince also contains choline - an essential micronutrient rarely
found in multivitamins.
That is why nutreince is manufactured in a U.S., FDA registered facility with over 40 years of experience manufacturing dietary supplements and nutraceuticals, and has been certified to comply with GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) requirements. Before nutreince is made a rigorous screening of all raw materials is preformed by highly trained quality control personnel and the finished product receives full microbiological testing before being shipped to you. Additionally, we send a beginning, middle, and end sample of each production lot to an offsite lab for independent analysis so that you can rest assured that the ingredients on the label are actually what you and your family are receiving.
